Health and Wellness
Welcome to the Nurse’s Clinic of The Geneva School. It is my great pleasure to serve the students, families, and staff of the Geneva community as School Nurse. Fourteen years of hospital and critical care nursing experience along with even more years as a mom have prepared me well for the variety of opportunities each day brings. This year, as we open the new building, I will caring for our upper school students, and I welcome Aly Alwinson, RN, to care for our lower school students.
My primary role each day is caretaker for students who are injured or become ill at school, as well as meeting daily routine needs for students with chronic medical issues. From cuts, splinters and headaches, to blood sugar monitoring, routine medications and nebulizer treatments, to asthma attacks, allergic reactions and traumatic injuries, we are prepared to care for a variety of student needs.
We are also here to help promote a healthy environment for our students and staff, to ensure student medical records comply with state law and school policy, and to train and educate our staff to be prepared for basic medical emergencies. One of my favorite Latin sayings is, “Mens sana in corpore sano,” meaning a healthy mind in a healthy body. Our goal is to maximize our students’ intellectual and spiritual growth through caring for their physical needs. Let us know how we can assist you.
